Promoting Degree Attainment Among Former Foster Youth

Background and Focus on the Future

Helios Education Foundation is committed to ensuring students realize their fullest potential through education. Our partner, Educate Tomorrow, is committed to providing educational opportunities for disadvantaged youth in Florida. In this insightful education brief, Helios and Educate Tomorrow explore data related to postsecondary opportunities available to Florida students preparing to "age out" of the foster care system. Jointly, we wanted to understand the programs and supports available to these students and identify any trends or impacts that education policies and practices may have upon postsecondary persistence and completion.​
